Meet Some of our Amazing Volunteers

Our Favorite FRIENDS are those who volunteer with us. And we love highlighting the people who make our team go!

That includes our volunteer of the quarter Chuck Sinno, whose dedication, innovation, and sense of humor provides inspiration for everyone who works alongside him.

And Mae Henne, Vicky Ustymenko, Scarlett Seals, Sybil Freedman and Maddie LeLuc, who have all been contributing to the FRIENDS through the Charleston County Public Library's VolunTeens program. Teens in the program gain important workforce skills and get connected with essential library services and resources.
